Crimped Envelope

This type of card is called the Crimped Envelope Pocket Card. The tutorial is from Splitcoast from a couple of weeks ago and can be found here.

The idea is that you take an envelope, cut off part of it to be the “cover” and crimp the rest to shrink it down. Pretty easy, huh? I remember seeing the same type of project on someone’s blog a few months ago. Can’t remember if this is the same person (usually they ask the more-or-less originator to do the tutorial).

Of course, since the tutorial card used a rose as the main image, so did I. This card came together pretty easily. The hardest part was to figure out where the rose needed shadows!

Stamp set: Fifth Avenue Floral, Botanical Blooms (SAB)

Ink: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Not Quite Navy, Basic Gray, Chocolate Chip

Paper: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Basic Gray

Accessories: Medium envelope, Paper crimper, Paper snips, Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon, Sponge daubers, Mini glue dots, Stampin’ dimensionals, Blender pen

I used the glue dots to hold the ribbon in place. It’s pretty snug, but I thought with handling, it may eventually slide off the top.

Here’s the insert:

Hey, I only had to stamp the sentiment once this time! 🙂

Whoever did the blog entry I saw earlier also attached the insert to the “cover”. I think you would have to adjust the dimensions of the insert, and only attach to part of the “cover” (so you can still slide part of it onto the crimped part). Well, I guess figuring out that part is for another day. 🙂
